Bin Laden: The Forbidden Truth About Bush, Oil and Washington's Secret Negotiations with The taliban

At Democracy Now! we have often called the Bush administration the Oiligarchy. Vice-President Dick Cheney of coursewas the president of Halliburton, a company that provides services for the oil industry. For nearly a decade,National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice worked with Chevron, while secretaries of commerce and energy, DonaldEvans and Spencer Abraham, worked for another oil giant. Many of the US officials now working on the administration'sAfghanistan policy also have extensive backgrounds in the world of multinational oil giants.

The National Security Agency and the So-Called War On Terror

Since the Bush administration began its so-called war on terror, we have reported extensively on the scores of peoplein detention. The identity of many of these people remains unknown. Largely they are held in communicado withoutcharges. Today we are going to look at some of the methods the government used in determining what people they wouldarrest and hold in the aftermath of September 11th. In the days following the attacks, Congress passed laws andbudgets that expanded the surveillance powers of the world's largest spy organization the National Security Agency.
